A funny thing happened as I looked at my work calendar yesterday. I happened to notice that my last day at work is only 86 days away. People keep telling me I spent the best years of my life working there. My reply is that I spent those years to pay for the best years of my life, which have not happened yet. For too many years, I treated my job like a prison sentence. I learned to "do time". I used to visit a convicted murderer in prison, and he used to give me tips about the attitude one must adopt to survive in prison. Well, as far as it goes, that attitude will provide the inner means to survive in prison. But my work was a privelege, not a prison. There could have been much more enjoyment then there was. The defense mechanism, the character defect, the illness of depressing robbed me of the joy that the job could have provided. The good news is, I get to have that joy NOW! I am having fun at work doing my job, and nobody seems to get it but my closest friends at work and me. 86 the negative, triple order the positive, and when a choice of how to feel about something comes, always choose the favorable one. A young woman at one of the groups I attend says that the difference between an ordeal and an adventure is the attitude. Catch a good attitude if you can, and bring it to "Over the Fence". You will have an adventure!!!
